Westmount cornerPosted: January 13, 2015
We’ve been waiting a long time to be able to buy Stillman & Birn sketchbooks in Montreal. I was happy to see that my favourite art supply store — Avenue des Arts in Westmount — is finally stocking them. There’s a great supply of books just to the left of the door, including this one I am trying out. It’s from the Alpha Series and it’s a new horizontal format, about 8″ x 5″. I am used to painting on the Beta series which has much thicker paper so this warps a bit more than I am used to, but that’s because I use so much water. If you tend to paint a bit drier than I do or if you work in pen or pencil with a light wash, this would be perfect for you.
